This is the perfect idea on where to get nightly rentals in Marathon, around the middle keys. It is A good place, but not the fancy or expensive resorts. Even the Hotel Chains are fantastic down in the Florida Keys. I think the Holiday Inn is fantastic, as the location is really good for bar sightseeing and seafood.
You can even bring a boat as they offer boat dockage too. Free coffee all day is a welcome treat.
You can pick up a fishing charter just up the road at Key Colony Beach Marina. There are too many fishing boats to count, and they can be reserved the day before. We prefer the backcountry flats fishing, since there is more to see. The deep sea fishing is fine, but all you do is look at horizon.
It is nice to stay at all the the Keys: the Upper, Middle and Lower Keys. Marathon is nice because it is in the middle and you can do about any event that is going on anywhere, even the 50 or so minutes to Key West.
A very nice place to stay for the Marathon International Bonefish Tournament, and we really loved the 24 hour free coffee. It was a nice place, clean and easy to get around the island. Close to Key Colony Beach. Call it an excellent Florida Keys Holiday Inn Hotel.
I will stay at the Holiday Inn. It looks nice. Lots of Blackfin fishing and a nicely modern, plus clean hotel is just perfect for couples. I thought it was just going to be ok, but this is a special place to stay. For the middle keys, call the Holiday Inn in Marathon and make a deal with them.
Please guard that Lion King Kitty, as this is not a pet friendly place. We got a condo last time, and If you leave a small half inch crack in the sliding door, you can hear any issues. Cats find critters in the keys. I can fix up a backyard light, nicely bright too. Guard him against the super scrapper cat.
